The Liberator Collection

Seems these were just as uncommon then as they are now...
Here's one of the few pictures showing these crates being handled during WW2; Glidermen of the 81st AAA Bn/101AB Div loading a similar crate into a Waco Glider for Market Garden, September 1944. A second crate and an M3A4 Utility Hand Cart is also visible in the photo.
